Default Dealership Experience maybe getting a JOB!! (updated!)

This morning after a huge breakfast at a local joint, I went to Gene dencker Buick-Pontiac for my oil change. Went in and asked for it and all. $25 So I go and sit in the waiting room (TV with remote and your alone!) 10 minutes later guy comes to me and says that the lifter thing that lifts the car up rubbed the fuel line and started leaking. He noted that they're fixing it ASAP and that the oil change for free for the trouble. 45 minutes, 10 glasses of water, and a hellotta staring at a GP GXP and its all done.

Oh and on the way home a Trailblazer and a LeBaron almost got into an accident! REALLY close.

Thats not the best part though. The parts guy is leaving next Wed. and they need someone. I asked and they pay $7.50 and insurance is provided at my cost. 7:30 am to 5 pm M-F and I'm REALLY interested in it. everyone there I was with was friendly and cool with me staring at them doing the oil change. even got to take a good look at the underside and its really good down there for a '93 up here in the midwest.

I'm happy

I'd say so. Could have ignored what happened. You would have found out eventually but how could you prove they did it?

Yea that coulda been a doozy! The old guy said to my face that he wanted me to come back after he told me about it. I will be coming back in 3 months or 3000 miles.
